The Museum of American Bird Art in Canton is hosting an event for kids’ ages 7-9 called nature’s superheros: a porcupine story today from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. Kids will learn about porcupines and their babies during this program, with a focus on the amazing adaptations of porcupines in North America and around the world. You’ll listen to a story before you examine quills under a microscope. You’ll go on a nature walk to collect pine needs to create your very own clay porcupine mama or baby to take home too! You must register for the class by calling 781.821.8853 or clicking HERE!  The cost is $8 for member kids and $10 for nonmember kids (adults free).

Head to the Plymouth Public Library on South Street today from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. for a free event called Native American Nature Tales, a program to help connect kids’ ages 4 and older to American history and culture. Storyteller Diane Edgecomb explores tribal myths and legends of the animals and birds of North America. Ranging from the humorous to the heart-felt, these stories celebrate native culture and its strong links to the natural world. Through how and why legends, Diane helps us understand how Native American culture clothed the world in story, enlivening the natural world.



Who’s that?! The Blue Hills Trailside Museum is hosting a family owl prowl tonight from 7 – 9:00 p.m. and is a great program for kids ages 6 and up. You’ll discover some of the unique adaptations of owls, practice owl calls, and meet some of the museum’s resident owls before going on a night hike to search for owls and other nocturnal life! You must register for this event since space is limited. Also, to preserve the magic of the night, the museum staff ask that only adults carry flashlights. Leave toys, clothes or shoes that flash or make noise at home so you can enjoy the sounds of the animals and the twinkling of the stars! The cost is $8 for member kids and adults, $10 for nonmember kids and adults. Register by calling 617.333.0690 or click HERE.
